Ian started kindergarten this week.
My baby boy is in kindergarten!
And as if that weren’t enough, Ainsley is going to 3 year old preschool 2 days a week. I am beside myself!
On one hand I can’t believe that both of my kids are growing up and are going to school, on the other hand I am super excited that I will have 3 hours, 2 days of week that will be mine. MINE! To do with what I want, even though I’ll probably just end up doing chores around the house. But at least they will be uninterrupted chores.
That being said, one of my new responsibilities this year is making sure the kids have a snack each day. It’s not lunch, but a snack that they will have when they get in from recess. The picked out special snack bags for the year.
Ian’s snack bag sports Spiderman on the top complete with a holographic type image that he likes to move around to see Spidey swing through the air. Ainsley, being ALL girl, chose a very pink and sparkly bag with a unicorn on the front. It’s even designed to look like a purse instead of a lunch bag. 🙂
Finding things to put in their snack bags has been a bit hard. I want things that are not only healthy but that I know they will eat. That’s where Go-gurt comes in. My kids love yogurt and what better way take it with them than Yoplait Go-gurt. The other great thing is that it can help keep the rest of their snack cold if need be. Just stick the tubes in the freezer and once frozen they will keep the rest of your child’s snack/lunch cold until it’s time for them to eat it. The great thing is even if it’s not completely thawed by the time the lunch bell rings your kids can still enjoy it as a nice dessert!
For the first day of school my kids were able to partake in a small PB&J sandwich, goldfish crackers, fig newtons and of course a tube of Go-gurt. When I picked them up there wasn’t anything left. At least I know I picked the right stuff!
